What size house do I need for my chickens?

Most manufacturers will offer a guide for he capacity, but rule of thumb is a house that is a mtr sq can hold up to 4-5 large and 6-8 small hens, they don’t need a lot of room in the house, the outside space is more important. If you do have a smaller house with only 1 nesting box, always offer more external nesting boxes as chickens, we recommend 1 box to 3 hens as a minimum.
